Zara Phillips to keep maiden name after royal wedding to Mike Tindall

I was just in Edinburg and all I saw was a bunch of drunk hen and stag parties! This would have been much more exciting.  Zara Phillips recently married England

rugby union player Mike Tindall, and has elected to keep her maiden name because she thinks it will be better for her equestrienne career. One news source claimed that keeping her maiden name was not “any kind of feminist statement” but I highly disagree. A woman keeping her name in support of her career, her heritage, and family just to name a few reasons is a great reason (and a feminist one I might add, because it is a choice that honors one woman and promotes all of them).
